First: I am not endorsing Fred Thompson for President with this entry. He may or may not be a good candidate; it is still up in the air. But he did have an interesting quote this week.
An AP story that I read in the Knoxville News-Sentinel (www.knoxnews.com) had this quote from Thompson about running for President. “If a person craves power for the sake of power, if he craves the office for the sake of holding office, he’s got his priorities mixed up. It’s a desire to do something, not be something.”
I like this quote and I hope that all of those who are considering a run for the White House believe this.
I also hope that this is how we who follow Christ view our lives. I hope that we have a desire to do something with what we believe, not just be something.
Faith without works is really no faith at all. See James 2:14-26.
